The forward’s leg got twisted underneath him as he came back to the floor and snapped his ankle grotesquely.The 27-year-old sat up, looked at his foot and yelled in horror while some players covered their mouths and others turned their heads. Hayward’s stunning injury changed the tenor of the highly anticipated season opener between two of the league’s best teams, and will likely alter the direction of Boston’s season. Hayward will require surgery and need months to recover.The Celtics were understandably shaken at halftime, and went to the locker room down 16.However, they battled back and were still leading 98-97 when James, who only played in one exhibition after spraining his ankle on Sept. 27, spun in the lane and made a layup to put Cleveland up by one. On Boston’s next possession, James cut off Marcus Smart and deflected the ball off the guard’s leg and out of bounds.James then made a crosscourt pass to a wide-open Love, who drained his 3 to give the Cavs a four-point cushion.Irving’s free throw made it 102-99, and the Celtics had two late chances but both Jaylen Brown and Irving missed late 3s.ADVERTISEMENT Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James, left, passes against Boston Celtics’ Semi Ojeleye in the first half of an NBA basketball game, Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017, in Cleveland.

The injury was a reminder that there are no givens and games, seasons and careers can change in a blink.TIP-INSCeltics: Coach Brad Stevens has been impressed with Irving’s basketball acumen and how quickly he has picked up Boston’s system. “He’s spent a lot of time watching film, a lot of extra time talking about it. He has good insights,” Stevens said. “Guys like that can fit in anywhere. It’s about how do we all put our strengths together.” … Marcus Morris (sore right knee) took part in pregame drills but is out for a week or more.Cavaliers: James (28,816) passed numerous Hall of Famers while jumping to No. 7 on the career scoring list last season. He came in nearly 1,500 points behind Dirk Nowitzki at No. 6. … Although it may take some time for the Cavs to find their on-court chemistry, coach Tyronn Lue said that doesn’t change his early expectations. “We still expect to win,” he said. “We still expect to play hard and play the right way. It’s going to be a process and we understand that.
